"Education is about preparing kids for life, and public education is about helping people have equal opportunity, helping those who don't have as much money have a more level playing field," says Ali Partovi, co-founder of Code.org, in an interview with MindShift at the Big Ideas Fest a few months ago.
Partovi has an ambitious goal: To get public high schools to offer computer programming classes -- not just as an elective, but as a science requirement. "It's absolutely relevant for public education to embrace computer science," he says. "I can't think of any other science that would better prepare you for life in the 21st century."
